Abstract The centrifugal pump unit includes a flow switch arranged within the pump housing in the flow path of a delivery fluid, which essentially consists of an electromagnetic switch device and a two-armed, pivotably mounted lever whose one arm projects into the flow path and whose other arm carries a magnet which is in contact-free active connection with the switch device. The switch device is arranged within a terminal box mounted on the unit housing. The lever is seated within a switch housing which is incorporated in a cartridge-like manner into the pump housing and which is hermetically sealed to the outside and which is arranged neighbouring the terminal box that such it is only in magnetic active connection so that the reed contact located in the terminal box is controlled by the magnet located in the switch housing. In this manner a usual terminal box may be used which does not need to be sealed with respect to the delivery flow.
